  1. And we finally bought the Montana 700! I hope it will bring us loads of geocaching fun! The last few times we went on a trip the maps on the official geocaching iphone app kept lagging an loading verry slowly so we decided to take on the extra cost and just go for it! If anyone is still interested in my findings as a newbie to hiking gps, keep me posted here and i will share my findings in a few weeks/months.
  2. @contesta i haven’t made a purchase yet. We decided that it could wait a couple of months seeing as its a pretty big buy. I have been thinking long and hard About what to buy and decided on the Montana 700. Purely because Of the touchscreen. I think it will be great on the road/trail. If they would combine the multi gps of the sr and the touchscreen of the Montana I would know what I would choose without a doubt! 😊
  3. What a helpful site for those of us that have never gotten a unit before. thanks for all the help!
  4. And maybe one last question, when I go out with my iPhone now I can look at the map and select the cache nearest to me on the map, I can see the list as well but find the map to be nicer to find the nearest caches when I am out geocaching. With the Montana I presume you can look at the map and just touchy the icon of the cache you want to see but how does it work with the 66sr? How do you select a geocache on the map page? I’ve been looking for a filmfragment where someone shows the live geocaching function on a 66 series gps but can’t find one. Not where the show it from start to finish. Not having any handheld experience makes that I don’t know how it works and would like some insight before I buy. ?
  5. And how long have you guys had the 66sr, I know the micro USB on some devices tends to have a bad connection after a lot of loading the battery’s. Resulting in not being able to charge the device.
  6. @MaliBooBoo and @Atlas Cached is it easy to log caches on the 66sr? And I mean log directly on the spot. I was thinking about it because the extra accuracy was really nice. Seeing as you guys have good results with it you might be able to answer.
  7. I am used to the screen of my phone for caching. I think the buttons of the 66sr might come in handy in cold weather but the big screen pushes me towards the 700. Navigation and logging might be easier on the touchscreen.
  8. Hi there, I am struggling in choosing a handheld gps. I’ve been geocaching for some time and have recently decided that my children (6, 4 and 2) are old enough to come with me on a cachehunt. I’ve been doing my geocaching and logging on my iPhone and find that I like logging on the spot verry easy and fun to do. Time is always short when coming back home so sitting down and logging at home is no option. I’ve narrowed my choice down to the gpsmap 66sr and the Montana 700. I know one is buttons and one is touchscreen but other than that and the price difference what Could convince me to choose one or the other. Please advise me because the choise is hard.
